speaking of music blogs, here're a couple of posts over at Willard's blog that some of you might find interesting:

"1973 was a turning point for the Grateful Dead. Only a few months after the death of PigPen McKernan, the Dead began work on their first studio album since 1970's commercial breakthrough, American Beauty. They'd left Warner Bros., started two record labels (Round & Grateful Dead Records), opened their ranks to outside players (Keith & Donna Godchaux) and began recording what would become the exquisitely wonderful Wake Of The Flood. Three years between studio albums was an eternity in the early 70s and the band's growth was immediately evident, displaying a new found depth in their writing and playing - as evidenced by the ambitious "Weather Report Suite" and the fragile beauty of "Stella Blue." Having worked some of this material out on the road before recording, it's no surprise these studio outtakes sound nearly as finished as the finished LP. You'll hear tapes spooling, count-offs, cut-offs and miscues... and some gorgeous instrumental articulation. These tapes are well known in Dead trading circles, but should be appreciated by anybody interested in the early, creative choices of what many still consider the greatest rock band America ever produced."

"Over the years, experimental guitarist Henry Kaiser (and his many friends) has reinterpreted the music of the Grateful Dead from every conceivable angle (solo, duo, quartet, jam band configurations) with inventive and often exhilarating results. Henry Kaiser Plays Dead gathers together 2CDs worth of (mostly unreleased) recordings, ranging from faithfully tweaked covers of "Mason's Children" and "Cold Rain And Snow" to 30 minute group improvisations delving into the deeper recesses of "Dark Star" and "Blues For Allah." All that is cool enough by itself, but this set brings you something we can actually guarantee you've never heard before. Exclusive to The Boat, two world premiere unreleased studio recordings - "Black Peter," a duet with vocalist/guitarist David Gans and a most unusual, avant interpretation of the Dead's trippy, "What's Become Of The Baby," from the 1969 LP, Aoxomoxoa. Both recorded weeks ago in June, 2009. And that's not all. You'll also hear unreleased live music from Psychedelic Guitar Circus, featuring Henry and guitarist Steve Kimock exploring the impossibilities of "Dark Star," before segueing nicely into Kaiser's own "Fake Zero" (for obsessives, a variation of this tune was called "Fake Xero" after 2007, also renamed "The Red Hills Of Rwanda" by Dead lyricist Robert Hunter for Bob Bralove's Second Sight CD). We've peppered all this goodness with a few outstanding tracks from HK's GD tribute CD, Eternity Blue, the promo-only Playola and 1991's Hope You Like Our New Direction, creating an expansive, 2-1/4 hour overview of Kaiser's relationship with the music of the Grateful Dead. You'll learn fast to expect the unexpected from Henry Kaiser, an extraordinary guitarist and world class improviser who, in a perfect world would not require this introduction. In case you can't tell by our other rare HK posts, we like the guy... and we guarantee that with a little download time you will, too. Click the back cover for musicians & details."
